1.
1) if F got 11, there are 29 left so either way you put it one of the candidate has to have more than 11 so SUFF
2) H got 14 so 26 left and F could get 15 or 13 so INSUFF

A

2.
1. Not sure what the measurement is but it is INSUFF
2. ok so you know it being right isoceles we have the sides X being equal while the hypotenuse Y being something else. We know the area is 1/2 *bh = 1/2*x*x= 1/2*x^2
Now we also know sqrt(x^2+x^2) = y through pyth. theorem. So since 1/2*x^2 = 25 we see x^2=50. so sqrt(2*x^2) = sqrt(100) = 10 = y
so B
